Meet Mohit Doshi, he is a young writer from India who has just started on his writing journey. I chat with him to get to know more about who he is, what inspires him and most important of all we get to be the first people to see his poetry!
I’m a 21 year old guy from India. I’m in my last year of graduation. I love writing poetries. Travelling is my second favourite thing. I have been to many places in India. I also love music and like to hear slow kind of songs and not the rock music.
When did you start creating poetry? Tell us a little about your journey.
It all started 3-4 years ago. I was in the 11th grade when I wrote my first poem for a girl whom I fell in love with. Since then i started writing poems. She is my inspiration and only because of her I started writing. Most of my poems are for/on her. Till now I have written 65 poems.
What is your style and why?
I don’t know what my style is. Generally I write what happens with me and how I feel for someone. I even write things which i cannot express to anyone. I write on my daily experience and events happening around me. I try to frame rhymes in my poem. In every poem of mine you’ll find rhyming words being used.
What inspires your poetry?
There are many things that inspire me and my poetry. First is the girl whom i love. Next are the experiences with peoples and events that happen with me on day to day basis. Also nature and surrounding around me helps in creating poetry. The relation with my family and friends helps me very much in my poetry.
What is the process you take to write your poetry?
I don’t follow any process to write my poetry. I write when i have something in my mind or when my heart wants to express some feeling. Most of the time poetry naturally comes from my mind and i start writing it. At times I don’t even need to think what to write and how. My mind just frames my feelings of thoughts into poetry.
Why did you start your Instagram account?
I started instagram account to upload my pictures. Then slowly i started following the accounts of poets. It helps me very much with my writing. I’m also in touch with few of the instagram poets and authors who help me with my problems that i face in writing.
Why is sharing your poetry special to you?
I haven't really shared my poetry with anyone other than my friends and close ones. But recently I started sharing my poetry on instagram. I feel great when other poets on instagram like or comment that they liked my poetry. This helps you work better and motivates you.
What do you want people to take from your poetry?
I want people to read my poetry and know me and my well as my poetries describes me very much. Every poetry written by me has some reason behind it. I want people should know that. I'm not that great to give message through my poetry. I'm still a learner.
What are the top three favourite poems you have written and why?
It’s very tough to select 3 poetries as all are my favorites. Poetries written by me are all very close to my heart. Still to answer your question I have selected 3 poetries.
“Believe me I’m there”- I love this poem because it gives me strength every time I read it. The poem was actually written keeping a girl in my mind and it is like I’m telling her “Though our lives become unfair, but believe me I’m there”
“Dusting the Memories”- This poetry tells about the sweet old days that I had with my special one. Now I will remember those memories and keep them for lifetime. It will help me in my ugly days.
“Failure” – This poetry tells about me. I failed in my exams for the first time in my life. I was very depressed and stressed. This poetry perfectly describes that time and struggle.
